    The stats regarding the Cash for Clunkers program have been released, and this is just sad. 6 of the top 8 vehicles traded into the program were Ford Explorers. At least they somewhat made up for it for having the #1 seller in the program with the Ford Focus. I do find it rather humorous that other than the 1999, they basically were traded in based on chronological order, lol!

    Something that bothers me with that list, is they individually list the years on the explorer...when it should just be...number 1 as Explorer. Not to mention the Explorer...isn't known for fuel efficiency!

    Maybe they got SO many Explorers, that it just puts it in perspective that 4 model years of Explorers were all able to beat the total number of Jeep Cherokee's or Grand Cherokee's all by themselves?

    I just noticed they don't list a year on the Jeeps, so I take it they just grouped all the model years for those two Jeeps and they still couldn't beat 4 model years of Explorers.

    After a thorough analysis I've concluded that you're 93 Ford is indeed a clunker.
